Endress+Hauser is now responsible for Canadian sales of the Kaiser Raman spectrographic instrumentation portfolio from Kaiser Optical Systems.

Kaiser, founded in 1979 and part of Endress+Hauser since 2013, is a purveyor of Raman spectrographic analysis technology.

Previously, Canadian customers had to work directly with Kaiser in the United States, as they did with SpectraSensors, another U.S.-based Endress+Hauser company that specializes in TDLAS and QF analyzers. Now, both companies’ products are sold locally by Endress+Hauser Canada.

Researchers and manufacturers in the chemical, polymer, pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, oil and gas, and food and beverage industries use Raman spectrographic analysis for highly accurate chemical composition measurements.

Common applications include assessing material quality, monitoring molecular reactions, aiding basic science research, assuring product quality and identifying unknowns.

Part of the portfolio in Canada will be the new embedded Kaiser Raman Rxn analyzer suite, featuring Raman RunTime control software for 24/7 connectivity to critical data.

The suite embeds the spectrometer functions into the analyzer electronics instead of using a standalone computer.

The Raman Rxn portfolio, comprised of the Raman Rxn2 and Rxn4 base models, integrates analyzer and control software in a fixed-purpose device with built-in intelligence. Each collects in situ process measurements, enabling real-time process monitoring, optimization and control.

Raw or processed data and diagnostics run over standard communication protocols – including OPC and Modbus – to assure data integrity and compatibility with third-party devices.

Additionally, the analyzers provide flexible installation options including benchtop, mobile wheeled cart, rack-mounted, or stainless-steel enclosures for lab, pilot plant, or dedicated manufacturing settings, even in hazardous area environments.
